3 Introduction The Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship is for professional managers who take lead responsibility for people, projects, operations and/or services to deliver long term organisational success. It is applicable to professional managers from all sectors - the private, public or third sector - and all sizes of organisation. It will typically take 4 years to complete, although the exact duration will be dependent on the previous experience of the individual. This apprenticeship has been designed to provide access to development opportunities for as wide a range of individuals as possible. This includes individuals who are at the start of their career and who wish to become professional managers and achieve Chartered Manager status, as well as those who may already have developed practical experience but who wish to develop their theoretical understanding of management skills further. The assessment approach will ensure that apprentices meet the skills, knowledge and behaviour outcomes as defined in the Standard, whichever Higher Education Institute (HEI) is delivering the degree: Crown copyright 2015 You may re-use this information (not including logos) free of charge in any format or medium, under the terms of the Open Government Licence.

4 The approach has been designed to be: Appropriate, relevant and feasible in a wide range of contexts Consistent across these contexts Affordable and manageable based on the number of potential learners. What distinguishes this apprenticeship is the blend of employer-defined skills, knowledge and behaviour outcomes that are integrated and assessed as part of a management degree, and professional recognition by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) through the award of Chartered Manager status. The HEIs will design their programmes and delivery to ensure all aspects of the standard are met. They will also develop approaches to delivery and assessment that will deliver high quality education and training to apprentices and fulfil employer expectations. This may either be achieved via a range of different delivery models including day release, block release, distance learning and online, or through a more integrated approach designed in association with the apprentice s employer. HEIs meet the rigorous quality assurance standards that are set, monitored and upheld by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education. They have robust and respected assessment processes and quality assurance that incorporates internal moderation and external examiners to ensure independence across the degree. The award of Chartered Manager status within the Apprenticeship will be undertaken by the CMI, the only independent body recognised by the Privy Council to award Chartered Manager status. As an Awarding Body, the CMI is also regulated by Ofqual and has robust and respected assessment and quality assurance processes, including moderation, to ensure consistency of standards. The End Point Assessment will be undertaken by a panel, comprising the employer, HEI and an independent assessor. The independent assessor will have the final decision in relation to the assessment and grading of the apprentice. The independent assessor will come from an independent assessment organisation, from the Register of Assessment Organisations. The remainder of this assessment plan will set out the approach to assessment. 1. Assessment Overview The delivery of the apprenticeship by the HEIs provides an integrated approach to developing and assessing skills, knowledge and behaviours across a range of modules within the degree programme. Each HEI will develop its own degree programme and will map the individual modules to the outcomes in the standard. Individual modules will contribute to the on-programme assessment of knowledge, skills and behaviour outcomes en-route to the final synoptic end point assessment. A portfolio of evidence will be created to support this and will be assessed as part of the end point assessment. The work based project is a substantial piece of work undertaken within the final year of the apprenticeship.

5 Achievement of the apprenticeship will depend on apprentices being required to successfully complete a number of assessment activities. The methods used will ensure that the apprentice is assessed across the whole of the published Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship Standard. The apprentice needs to pass a Gateway process, as determined by the HEI, which needs to confirm that they have met the two pre-requisites which are they have met the requirements of the degree and achieved the Chartered Manager Award. The independent assessor then receives a copy of the candidates portfolio and work based project, for assessment using a set of specific criteria ahead of competency based questioning as part of the final interview panel. The final panel integrates the process for reviewing all submissions and assessing whether candidates meet the Apprenticeship Standard. At this End Point Assessment, the candidate s full portfolio, work-based project and presentation will be assessed against the standard, to ensure that the apprentice has demonstrated the full range of skills, knowledge and behaviours detailed in the standard. During this process the apprentice will be asked clarification and testing questions by members of the panel. The separation of the On-Programme activity, Gateway process and End Point Assessment is demonstrated in diagram below: Crown copyright 2015 You may re-use this information (not including logos) free of charge in any format or medium, under the terms of the Open Government Licence.

7 2. Assessment Details This is typically a 4-year apprenticeship with an integrated approach to the assessment of knowledge, skills and behaviours. Delivery and assessment are organised through a range of modules that deliver the HEI s approach to the degree curriculum, and through agreement with the employer in relation to workplace development opportunities. The modules will cover the breadth and depth of the standard using suggested on-programme assessment methods that integrate the knowledge, skills and behaviour components, and which ensure that the apprentice is sufficiently prepared to undertake the synoptic project and meet the Chartered Management status criteria, which will be assessed by the HEI, employer and independent assessor. The modules, synoptic work based project and assessments will be clearly mapped to Standard to show how the outcomes will be met. The Standard can be found at Annex Assessment Methods The assessment strategy includes On-Programme and End Point Assessment using both on-programme and synoptic assessments. The formative On-Programme Assessment methods will be agreed between the HEI and employer, and are likely to include an appropriate mix of assignments, reports, practical exercises, projects, and feedback on behaviours via 360 degree feedback or equivalent mechanisms. In addition the apprentice will create a portfolio of evidence, which will demonstrate how learning has been applied, their achievements and capabilities. It is a collection of evidence which demonstrates evidence of the skills, knowledge and behaviours an apprentice has acquired against the standard, and supports the attainment of Chartered Manager status. There will be regular reviews (at least quarterly) between employer and HEI with a formal annual assessment of progress. Towards the end of the programme, the apprentice will undertake a synoptic work-based project, which will bring together elements of their learning from different parts of the programme and show their accumulated knowledge and understanding of management and its application in their organisation. The End Point Assessment is by a robust panel interview, which will include a presentation on the synoptic work based project, review of portfolio evidence, and a question and answer session This combination will fully test that the apprentice meets all the requirements of the standard. 2.2 Assessment Processes On Programme Assessment The On-Programme Assessment approach will be agreed between the HEI and employer. The assessment will give an ongoing indication of performance against the final outcomes defined in the standard. The degree modules will cover the full range of the required skills and knowledge from the standard. Formative assessment will give an ongoing indication of performance against the final outcomes defined in Crown copyright 2015 You may re-use this information (not including logos) free of charge in any format or medium, under the terms of the Open Government Licence.

8 the standard. Through regular reviews, the HEI and employer will support the apprentice, and provide extra guidance and support where performance issues might arise, to ensure the apprentice is fully supported in meeting the required outcomes. This approach draws on good practice already undertaken in universities, combining it with employer support and workplace context to enable application of skills, knowledge and behaviours on an ongoing basis. Good practice guidance will be provided by the Employer Group, in conjunction with the HEIs, to help employers manage this process effectively. In practice this means: Apprentices acquire knowledge, skills and behaviours as defined in the standard via the modules and assessments provided by the HEI Employers can select their preferred HEI, location and/or delivery model Apprentices do not have to be assessed more than once in a specific knowledge area. Modules will be assessed and passed in accordance with University regulations. This will ensure that the student is prepared for the synoptic work based project near the end of the programme and demonstrate successful outcomes against the knowledge, skills and behaviours defined in the standard. The descriptor for higher education qualifications at Level 6 on the Framework for Higher Education can be found at: Gateway to the End Point Assessment The Gateway process and End Point Assessment will run as a concurrently as possible. This will be used to confirm that the apprentice has met the pre-requisite requirements of the standard before they move to the End Point Assessment. Degree The HEI will need to confirm that the degree has been completed, that the work-based project meets the final requirements of the degree, and that the degree can be awarded. Apprentices will be graded by the HEI for their specific management and business degrees using Honours degree classifications for English Universities. All UK universities must follow the QAA Code of Practice for the assurance of academic quality and standards in higher education. Chartered Manager Status An assessor representing the CMI will need to confirm that the portfolio submission meets the requirements of Chartered Manager status. It is only once both the HEI and independent assessor have confirmed that the apprentice has achieve both the degree and Chartered Manager status that they will be invited to the end point assessment.

9 2.2.3 End Point Assessment Following successful completion of the Gateway, the HEI will submit the candidates details and written submission to the independent assessor. The independent assessor then receives a copy of the candidates online portfolio and end project, for assessing ahead of a final interview panel. The portfolio of evidence and the work-based project are reviewed, assessed and marked to confirm that there is sufficient evidence that the candidate s learning has been applied, and that they have demonstrated all the skills, knowledge and behaviours against the standard see more detailed criteria in Annex 3. The final panel then integrates the process for reviewing all submissions and assessing whether candidates meet the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship Standard. At this final Panel, the candidate s full portfolio, work-based project and presentation are reviewed against the standard, to ensure that the apprentice has demonstrated the full range of skills, knowledge and behaviours detailed in the standard. During this process the apprentice will be asked clarification questions by members of the panel. The Assessment Panel The HEI will be responsible for co-ordinating the assessment panel process and will invite the independent assessor to act as chair. The independent assessor will have the final decision as to the outcome of the panel and the award of the apprenticeship and grading. The panel will be comprised of: an independent assessor (chair) a representative from the business school/academic institution a representative from their employer The End Point Assessment comprises a range of assessment methods, to build in rigour and ensure that all components of the standard have been fully tested and met, as set out in Annex 3: Learning Outcomes and Assessment Criteria. Work Based Project The Work Based Project is one that represents the skills, knowledge and behaviours in the standard. It provides a substantive evidence base from a business related project to demonstrate the application of skills and knowledge. The project will take place towards the end of the apprenticeship likely to be during the final year and will also be part of the Management Degree activity. The End Point Assessment integrates the project outcomes and presentation into the overall synoptic assessment. Each project must enable the following to be demonstrated: The application of knowledge and skills to meet the outcomes in the standard The approach to planning and completion of the project The application of behaviours from the standard The practical requirements for the delivery of synoptic projects are set out at Annex 2.

10 It is designed to assess apprentices in a consistent way, irrespective of their workplace and HEI. Because of the significance of the project, the employer and HEI will work together with the apprentice to agree a project that is achievable within the employer s business constraints whilst meeting the needs of the standard. The project should be conducted as part of the apprentice s normal work. The employer should make allowance, in terms of time and resource, for the project to be undertaken. Any elements which need to be undertaken outside of normal work should be agreed between the employer, apprentice and HEI so that apprentices are not disadvantaged in any way from performing their job and meeting the requirements of the project. The completed project work will be submitted to the HEI for assessment as part of the degree, and also to the independent assessor who will ensure that it demonstrates competence across the Apprenticeship Standard. The project work will be distributed to three individuals who will form a panel who will interview the apprentice. Portfolio The evidence contained in the portfolio will comprise of complete and/or discrete pieces of work that cover the totality of the Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship Standard. This will be a range of materials and documents generated over the period of the apprenticeship and which provide evidence of the apprentices ability to apply and demonstrate management concepts. The portfolio will be produced by the apprentice having first learned and applied the relevant skills/competencies and behaviours. It will demonstrate their very best work, enabling them to demonstrate how they have applied their knowledge and understanding in a real work environment to achieve real work objectives. Evidence may be in the form of reports, minutes, reflection, demonstrations, presentations, and feedback from managers and peers. The portfolio will also show how the apprentice has demonstrated the behaviours, especially around contact with others, team work and areas where they have exceeded the requirements of the role. This can be in the form of manager s report, s, customer comments, peer review etc. Employers and the HEIs will assist the apprentice to develop their portfolio to ensure that it is complete and that it covers the totality of the Standard. The completed portfolio will be assessed by an independent assessor who makes their own judgement on the quality of the work. It will be tested against specific criteria which will be on a sampling basis (a range of 10 20%) to prevent predictability, and will cover a range of assessment methods used to gain evidence for the portfolio. The independent assessor will note particular aspects of the work that they wish to discuss with the apprentice during the panel interview, either to confirm their judgement and/or provide further information on which to base their grading decisions. The Interview The purpose of the interview is to: Clarify any questions the independent assessor has from their assessment of the work based project and full portfolio; Confirm and validate judgements about the quality of work; Crown copyright 2015 You may re-use this information (not including logos) free of charge in any format or medium, under the terms of the Open Government Licence.

11 Explore aspects of the work, including how it was carried out, in more detail; Provide a basis for the independent assessor to make a holistic decision about the grade to be awarded. As part of the panel interview the apprentice will be required to take part in two end point assessment processes a presentation on the work-based project and a Question and Answer session. This will be conducted face-to-face or in exceptional circumstances via video or teleconference. The Presentation The presentation focuses on the outcomes of the Work Based Project. The apprentice will deliver a 15 minute presentation which describes the objectives and outputs of their work based project, and will demonstrate: What the apprentice set out to achieve What they have produced in the project How they approached the work and dealt with any issues Confirm the demonstration of appropriate interpersonal and behavioural skills The presentation will be assessed as part of the overall project assessment, and guidance on the nature of the presentation and assessment criteria will be agreed to ensure consistency in approaches and that all key areas are explored. The primary focus of the presentation will be on the work undertaken during the project, however during the question and answer session the panel will be able to explore the apprentices broader experiences to demonstrate that the knowledge and skills defined in the standard have been met. Practical requirements for the presentation: The presentation will take place following the completion for the project and the preparation of the final report The apprentice will receive appropriate notice of their presentation time (a minimum of 7 days notice) A structured brief will be used to support the presentation to ensure a consistent approach The presentation and Q&A session will normally be of c 1 hour duration The presentation will be conducted face to face, or in exceptional circumstances via live media The presentation will be conducted in a suitable location organised by the HEIs The apprentice must be put at ease to enable them to do their best The presentation will be to the HEI and independent assessor, and the employer whenever possible. Question and Answer session The apprentice will provide responses to a series of competency based questions put to them by the panel members. The questions will require the apprentice to draw on their experiences throughout their apprenticeship but will also focus on the findings/recommendations made within their Work Based Project activity. Further guidance will be developed by the employer group, working with the CMI and HEI steering group, on the nature of presentation and the assessment criteria used, as well as the question and answer session.

12 3. Final Assessment and Grading The final assessment and grading will be undertaken by the Panel, with the final decision made by the independent assessor. Marks will be allocated across the areas being assessed, with a maximum possible mark of 100. The panel will award marks based on their assessment of the portfolio, work-based project, presentation and the panel interview. The marks will be based on how the evidence presented to the panel contributes to: What the apprentice has shown they can do against the requirements of their job role How the apprentice has approached and the way they have completed the task(s) Who the apprentice has worked with demonstrating personal and interpersonal qualities they have brought to all their work relationships End Point Assessment Evidence Maximum Mark Portfolio 55 Project 25 Presentation & Interview 20 The marks will then be combined to give the final grading: Grade Total Mark Distinction 70+ Merit 60+ Pass 50+ Fail Less than 50 When applying the grades, the independent assessor hosting the panel interview will act as the final arbiter. This will not have any impact on the final degree classification that the HEI awards. The scoring and grading mechanism will be further developed by the Employer Group, with the CMI and HEIs, to ensure the grading approach reflects: What constitutes an outstanding manager: someone who is not just good, but also has the potential to improve quickly and someone who is not just confident and fully capable of doing the job, but someone who regularly goes beyond expectations Market value: what employers across sectors would constitute as an outstanding and exemplary manager, demonstrated in a way that is transferable across employers Crown copyright 2015 You may re-use this information (not including logos) free of charge in any format or medium, under the terms of the Open Government Licence.

13 4. Assessment Responsibilities and Quality Assurance We are considering employer-led approaches working with the professional body for the continued quality assurance and governance, and are working through the options with BIS. The assessment methods described above are designed to produce assessment outcomes that are consistent and reliable, allowing fair and proper comparison between apprentices employed in different types and sizes of organisations. The processes described in this section are designed to ensure the consistent application of the assessment processes and Standard. The management degree will be graded using Honours degree classifications for English universities. All UK universities must follow the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) code of practice for the assurance of academic quality and standards in higher education. This ensures consistency across HEIs. The descriptor for higher education qualifications at Level 6 on the Framework for Higher Education can be found at: All independent assessors will be registered on the Register of Assessment Organisations, to ensure employer choice. All independent assessors for this standard will be required to be CMI accredited and able to assess against the Chartered Manager status. As such the independent assessors will go through a training process to ensure consistency across the team. As the assessor will be assessing work at Level 6, in line with existing CMI Awarding Body rules, it will be required that each assessor holds a Masters/Level 7 qualification or comparable, has experience of the subject area for the assessments for which they will be responsible and holds an appropriate quality assurance qualification. They will be expected to attend two annual standardisation meetings and a sample of apprentices work will go through a moderation process which will be carried out by a panel consisting of representatives from employers, CMI and representatives from the Universities engaged with the apprenticeship. It is important that all independent assessors performance and marking/grading standards are monitored. This will be managed by a lead assessor who will conduct joint assessment visits to universities, complete quarterly reports and organise at least two standardisation days annually. The Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship Standard defines what is required in terms of skills, knowledge and behaviours. Our approach puts the standard at the heart of the assessment process, ensuring that judgments on occupational competence are consistent and that there is standardisation and comparability between employers. The group of employers, working with the CMI, will develop specifications for the tools, materials and techniques to be used in assessment and will specify the skills and experience required by independent assessors. These measures will provide the necessary confidence that those undertaking assessment have the necessary skills and industry knowledge to make reliable judgements. The tools developed will be validated by the group of employers.

14 5. Professional Body Recognition This assessment plan is aligned with professional recognition by the CMI (http://www.managers.org.uk/). They have worked alongside the employer group and HEIs to support the development of the standard and assessment approach. The apprentice will need to have met the Chartered Manager requirements before the end of the apprenticeship, and this gives them the professional membership status as outlined in the standard. On completion of the standard, the apprentice will be granted the CMgr designation which will remain valid as long as they continue their professional registration and maintain their CPD. If an individual, for whatever reason, decides not to continue with their professional membership, they will still be able to list the Chartered Manager Level 6 Apprenticeship Award and Management Degree (BA (hons), BSC or BBA, as relevant) as their achievements, but will no longer be able to use the designatory letters, CMgr. On completion of their Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship, individuals will be encouraged to complete their ongoing CPD. Further progression routes will include higher level qualifications such as Masters and Doctorates, and professional development from Chartered Member status to become a Chartered Fellow, which requires at least 10 years experience, with 3 years at a strategic management and leadership level, such as director. 6. Implementation: Management and Affordability The approach presented offers an affordable and scalable solution to assessment for this apprenticeship. The approach is robust and will ensure the best use of management time, ensuring ongoing assessment during the apprenticeship programme, with an End Point Assessment that delivers an effective synoptic assessment at reasonable cost and through a delivery model which minimises time and impact on the apprentice and employer. HEIs will deliver project based assessment that represents the application of an apprentices knowledge, skills and behaviours. This will be inbuilt in the delivery of the degree. Universities are responsible for ensuring that module assessments are examined in a consistent way and that judgements reached are comparable and reliable. It is recommended that the End Point Assessment will be delivered through a series of panel days, which will be set-up based on demand and across a range of geographical locations, primarily at HEI premises to reduce venue costs This will ensure that the independent assessor and HEI time is maximised, and that employer and apprentices have access to panels which are conveniently located, reducing the time spent on travel and associated costs. However, a panel can be convened as needed to ensure that the completion of an Apprenticeship is not affected. The cost of the End Point Assessment represents 5% of the total cost of delivering the apprenticeship.
